The Colorado Avalanche had a rare opportunity in overtime against the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday night, as they had two different power plays during the 4-on-4.
They didn’t score on Martin Hanzal’s carryover penalty to start the session, but Ryan O’Reilly ended the game with Keith Yandle in the box and less than 42 seconds on the clock, for the 4-3 win.
No matter the situation, O’Reilly’s ninth goal was a clutch one against one of the Western Conference’s best teams on home ice.
To the victor go the spoils, the postgame interviews … and the video bombs from their rookie teammates. Click the image to watch!
Oh that Nathan MacKinnon, what a scamp. He’s got a way to go before he reaches proper Kes-lurking levels of creepy, but hey, he’s a freshman.
What a memorable night for O’Reilly. The kind of heroics that make you remember his face. Well, unless you’re Fox Sports Los Angeles:
Hey, Max Pacioretty … Ryan O’Reilly … potato, potahto.
